Forum: faqs Subject: Deleting my account and files along with it

I wanted to delete both my account and the files that I had posted on that account. I assumed that when I deleted my account it would take down the files that I posted but when I checked to see if this had done so I realised they were still up there. However I couldn't get in to edit them or anything because I no longer had any control over them because I didn't have an account. So now I have had to sign up again so that I can post to find out how to get rid of them. The files are these two audio files...

They are under two accounts but this was as I had difficulties when I first signed up and ended up doing it twice but they are the same file though just posted twice under different names.
I hope someone can help because I am totally lost about what to do.

Try the 'Report Errors link', give them full details, and then patiently wait. It might take some time to get the file removed... basically the archive is set up to add materials, and there's no convenient way to remove them.

Pretty much, when you upload something you are kinda gifting it to the world, and since the podcast has been downloaded 10 times, it's still maybe out there somewhere...

but try the 'report errors link' and you can probably get it taken care of that way.
